Having finished sixth in IPL 7, Sunrisers Hyderabad made big changes to their squad for IPL 8 but could not improve on their sixth position.
Hyderabad’s squad had 23 players for IPL 8. Only 13 of these players were retained from the previous edition’s squad and 10 new players were brought into the franchise. The 23 players’ squad comprised of 15 domestic players and eight overseas players.
Devastating Australian opener David Warner was retained and was promoted to the captaincy of the franchise for IPL 8. Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan, although retained, had to relinquish the captaincy which he got in the previous edition of IPL.

Indian youngsters like Chama Milind, wicket-keeper batsman Lokesh Rahul and Ricky Bhui – who was also the youngest player in the squad at 19 years of age – were also given another chance by the franchise to showcase their talent on this stage.
The 10 new faces in the Sunrisers Hyderabad squad included internationally renowned players like New Zealand fast-bowler Trent Boult, Indian pacer Praveen Kumar, England batsmen Kevin Pietersen and Ravi Bopara, New Zealand batsman Kane Williamson and England One-Day International and T20 cricket team captain Eoin Morgan.
